Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

I’ve glued the wings to the fuselage and hopefully got them straight. In hindsight I should have cut the locating tabs off the wings, opened up the wing sides, glued longer tabs into the fuselage and fitted the wings that way instead as it would have helped with getting the wings level and made stronger wing-to-fuselage joints.

As per the build article I’m using, I added thin plastic sheet over the top of the fuselage (which avoided filling and sanding of the wing joints on top) and 5mm wide strips along the wings. Also some panel lines were scribed in before fitting the wings.

The next jobs will be to make the exhausts for the engines, fit the tailplane, tail wheel, improve the propellors and then think about getting some paint on it.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
